Array Expansion problem

Hello,

An array expansion keeps rebuilding for more than 24 hours. Here is the case:
Compaq ML370G2 1GB
SmartArray 532
36GB*3 RAID 5
Win2K
Dynamic disk partition
Exchange 2000

I added two more 36GB HDDs and tried to expand the array by creating another logical volume (array extension gave a scary warning of data lost!! so I skipped that)

Currently, the server boots up with two logical drives. Unfortunately, the array keeps on rebuidling ..rebuilding ...and rebuilding.. for more than 24 hours.

I noticed that when the rebuilding reached 30%, it goes back to 0% again!!!!! Does anyone know why?

Please let me know how to solve this problem.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
